doing a temple session in the morning in nauvoo
going into the different old museum buildings in nauvoo
going to carthage jail (it is so neat and emotional)
driving more.. i have a video of him keeping himself entertained, talking with people on the phone in an accent to keep himself awake. haha
and our last stop that night was in Ann Arbor, MI to stay with the wonderful Diamonds!
Day 4 was so much fun. Diane has recently gotten hooked to secondhand shopping and looking for treasures to revamp.. we all went that morning and i was loving it. The boys went to the Michigan State football game (Curtis was SO excited for this game and to go with Colby. It made him so happy to go!) and Diane, her little boy Jack, her friend, and I went and did some more shopping at secondhand stores and we sure found some treasures! I got a beautiful coffee table which is red (pictures to come) for only $10! I was so excited. Diane got so many great treasures like.. a toddler rocking chair, a cabinet thing, a head board and a few other things! I think i now have that bug thanks to her, but i have yet to find a place like that here... i will keep you updated. lol
We then went to Colby's school campus and had a picnic there. We then went to a cedar mills sort of thing and played on and in a giant haystack that they have for kids, and we ate the most delicious cinnamin apple cider donuts and fresh apple cider... mmm they were so good.. I still am craving those donuts. haha
We watched a movie that night (the boys stayed awake, us girls were too tired)
It was such a great day! We enjoyed every minute there, we can't wait for them to come visit us now!
Here are some fun pics..
